The course was pretty challenging (and occasionally frustrating) for a novice programmer, but doable.\n\nI enjoyed the course, and came away with a greater understanding of computers and programming.
Actually, before I start this course I had not a good idea about OOP concept such as constructors, HashMap.now I have fair confidence about that. thank you duke university making such an arrangement.

Course and Assignments were good, but don't hope for an answer in the discussion forums.

Quizzes are very time-consuming. It will be better to give programming assignments.

If you are beginner, this course is going to be difficult for you!

Discussion forums for this course was not quite helpful.

Not foundational course at all.

Do not recommend this course and this specialization for beginners. Maybe worthy to make only if you have an experienced developer on your side to help you. Most likely, you're going to be really frustrated. Had high expectations on this courses, sadly was disappointed. Poor explanations, short videos, too complicated and multiple assignments, using BlueJ environment which nobody in a real world uses.

The course asks for lots of programming and hard work which I appreciate as a way of learning better. But, some of the quiz questions have questionable wording which leads learner to answer wrong and have less grade even after knowing about the algorithm well and having correct program developed. This is frustrating.

Again, I wish the teachers would explain explicitly what is needed for the programming exercise. I felt abandoned by the faculty when I was trying to work out the programming exercise. There is an assumption that we as students know what the teachers are talking about.

Felt this was too vague for beginners, and too simple for those with experience. Spent a lot of time fighting with the quizzes to get it the answers it wanted, rather than focusing on writing good code.
Fantastic course. Great assignments and lectures. Low score because the workload is excessively high and overwhelming for novice programmers

Pretty Boring and absurd. Not a good way to describe the concepts

Not really useful ~ I would like to email in a PDF of my comments covering this course and the second course in this series

I hated whit all my bones this one, boring, repetitive
